The Janet Jackson documentary is set for January 28th on A&E and Lifetime. It looks pretty good considering I was expecting a big whitewash. Janet says she’s “guilty by association” with brother Michael, and her mother can’t even talk about him. I don’t know why Janet thinks that she’s guilty by association.
I see that Janet is depending on her brother, Randy, which may be why her career is so disheveled. In the trailer, Randy tells Janet that Justin Timberlake has contacted them about a Super Bowl re-do. As we know, Janet declined and Justin did the show again without her.
The film may also discuss Janet’s marriage to James DeBarge, and the rumor of their “secret love child.”
